Are you a new family looking to give your child the gift of dance this season? We're offering a special, reduced $10 Registration Fee for new dancers who register during the month of December and plan to start class in January. January is a wonderful time to join our studio. Enroll in an existing class and still perform in our June 3rd "Spark in our Heart" Showcase, or consider our 6-Week Winter Program with a Ballet+Tumble Class option for 3 and 4 year olds.
It's not too late to add a class for current dancers, either! We offer deep discounts for additional classes for the same dancer and your child benefits from the more regular consistency in their training, too. PLUS! Current families who add a class in December or January can take advantage of our delayed Costume Fee payment schedule. Costume Fees for new classes will be due February 15th so you don't have to worry about the added fees during the holidays. It's easy to add a class in your Online Account - or e-mail us to schedule a trial class.
